this winter was long. we're not making excuses, it's just a fact. we're pretty sure there was snow on the ground a few weeks ago. now that it's warm and flowers are blooming we've forgotten it all. the huge change in weather is one of the many things we like about living here, but this year we collectively (i am speaking for our entire state here) had to just put our heads down and power through. we were not making a damn thing. making things for us, is about joy. we're there now. bring on the blissful summer months. between being outside for long days with our kids, digging in the garden, spending time in the evenings on the porch, we might just make more things. we remember why we started doing it in the first place. the joy is back. just in time. get in there, it's all sparkly new.
